Lidl launches a budget coffee machine for a fraction of the price of high-end models

Lidl coffee machine

Now that winter is very nearly upon us, the days are getting shorter and shorter - and the mornings are only getting darker and more miserable.

But if you're looking for something to pep you up during those early starts - look no further than Lidl's newest release.

The budget retailer have just announced that they are launching a new Pod Coffee Machine, for a fraction of the price of other, similar models.

Lidl's will be on offer for just £49.99, a bargain considering that other machines like it on the market usually start from around £90 - and can even go up into the hundreds in cost.

For example, Nespresso's mini coffee machines start from £89.99 - with one of their most expensive models going for £429.99.

The new Lidl machine has a fold out cup-holder for espresso cups, and is actually even compatible with Nespresso capsules, if you can't bear to be without your higher-end coffee of a morning.

However, Lidl is also selling their own brand version of the pods, the Bellarom capsules. They come in three intensities, from Ristretto to Classico, and sell at just £2.69 for ten pods.

But the new coffee machine is part of Lidl's limited edition range, meaning it won't stay in stock forever. So when can you get your hands on it? It launches on Sunday 28th October in stores, and will only last until the final one sells out in your local Lidl. So get up early to grab yours!

Josie Stone, Head of Non-Food Buying at Lidl said, “At Lidl we’re always looking for new ways to perk up our customers’ day and the Bellarom pod coffee machine is no exception.

"Customers can enjoy ultra-smooth coffee in an instant, but without the price tag of other brands.” We can't wait!

Lidl's new release also ties in perfectly with the end of daylight saving time. Clocks will be going back this Sunday, marking the official end of summer and the beginning of the darker autumn and winter.

So if you're looking for something to wake you up as the winter draws in - this could be the perfect purchase!
